I'll be there too...it just happened to be on the same date as my mom's birthday-perfect excuse to get tickets!!
Look for the short blond in a long black skirt moaning about wearing high heels (skating calluses and high heels do not mix!)
I don't know anything more about the program-if I hear anything I'll post.

That's pretty much exactly it. It is a great excuse to wear something nice, though! Also, (probably because I'm a knitter) I'm always suggesting fancy shawls for female theater goers. It gives you a dressy way to deal with the air conditioning. And it gives the knitters in your lives something to do.

I know our seats are in 4th ring, row D or B, one person that I talked with said each one. Would it be possible to set up a meeting place, perhaps at first intermission, where all of us who are there could find each other? I'd love to meet some more of you.
My experience with dress is that anything truly goes, even on special gala nights. We'll be dressed decently, but for comfort. We have a long car ride after a day of teaching.

Rumors have it the program will include Serenade with Kistler, Borree, Kowroski. Who Cares? (The Man I Love pas de deux) Margaret Tracy and Nilas Martin and Stars and Stripes.

Leigh probably can answer this one...but is there likely to be an intermission? I've heard that the last opening night did not have an intermission. That makes sense because you gotta get the dancing done before too late so that you're not eating supper at midnight!
Oh, just to remind people...they may be randomly searching bags at the door and trunks going into the basement garage at Lincoln Center, so leave some extra time! And you might want to limit yourself to a small purse!

The performance is listed as ending at 9:02 pm.

Judging from Peter Martins' letter that is on the NYCB webpage and was sent to their mailing list/guild, they aren't forbidding anything in particular. I suspect that if certain things (binoculars etc.) are not going to be allowed in that they would have let us know ahead of time. Otherwise there will be a lot of chaos at the door.
It's probably wise though NOT to bring any large bags, backpacks etc.
